City Recital Hall and Ragazzi Wine and Pasta are partnering up this summer to couple exquisite food and wine with exceptional live music in the laneways. This is the ideal summer treat where you can relax outside with a tipple and soak up some live music that we have all missed so much. 

Acclaimed Indigenous vocalist Emma Donovan writes songs that are optimistic, impassioned, and bruisingly honest. Emma grew up singing church songs with her grandparents on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia and her first secular gigs were singing in the family band, The Donovans, with her mother and five uncles. Throughout her career, she has toured and recorded with many of the mainstays of Indigenous music from Archie Roach to Dan Sultan and was a leader of the Black Arm Band project. This summer, experience Emma's soulful voice in this intimate concert, featuring new music and songs from the past. Emma will be accompanied by guitarist Tom Martin (The Putbacks) for this special event. 

Entry is via Pitt Street.
